Associate Scientist, In Vivo Pharmacology / GEMMs Senior Manager / Associate Director Quality Assurance


The department of Cellular Biology at Unity Biotechnology is seeking to hire a Research Associate II / Senior Research Associate to perform lab-based studies aimed at elucidating mechanisms of immune regulation in order to develop novel immunomodulatory therapies for the treatment of aging related diseases. This position will afford the successful individual an opportunity to create immunotherapy clinical candidates for an emerging and exciting biology and to translate that into a pipeline of differentiated medicines. The successful candidate should be a highly innovative and creative biologist who has hands‑on experience with in vivo animal models of disease, including oncology related models, and in vitro assays.

The successful candidate will be both a strong lab-based individual contributor and a team player who synergizes with other scientists. The duties of the job include experimental design and execution, analysis and interpretation of data, and presentation (verbal/written) of findings to the Discovery team. The candidate will have an important role in the generation of key datasets that are critical for the declaration of development candidates.
